Novacare Recalls Dozens of Dietary Supplement Products

Novacare LLC just announced it is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/defective_drugs">dietary supplement products sold under the names Stiff Nights, Aziffa, Size Matters, Erex, Mojo, Hard Drive, Eyeful, Red Magic, Straight Up, Zotrex, Monster Excyte, WOW, Xaitrex, Verect, Prolatis, Xytamax, Maxyte, Libidinal, OMG, OMG45, and Zilex (with Golden Spear), said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Novacare LLC was told by representatives of the FDA that the products appear to contain sulfoaildenafil, an analogue of Sildenafil, an FDA-approved drug used as treatment for male Erectile Dysfunction. “Sulfoaildenafil” is not declared on the product labels and the undeclared ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.

The recalled products were distributed in bottles and/or “blister cards” to retailers and via Internet sales. All lots of these recalled products with manufacture or distribution dates prior to June 17, 2010 are being recalled.

To date, no illnesses or adverse effects have been reported to the company in connection with these recalled products.

Customers with any of the recalled products in their possession should stop using them immediately and contact their physician if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking these recalled products.

Consumers and healthcare professionals should report any adverse events that may be related to the use of the recalled Novacare products to the FDA’s Med Watch Adverse Event Reporting Program online at www.fda.gov/medwatch/report.htm; by telephone at 1-800-FDA-1088; or by returning the postage-paid FDA form 3500—which may be downloaded from www.fda.gov/MedWatch/getforms.htmmail—by mail to FDA Med Watch, HF-2, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20852-9787 or by fax to 1-800-FDA-0178.

Consumers should return any unused product to the place of purchase or contact Novacare LLC directly at 801-290-1738, Monday through Friday, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Mountain Daylight Time.
